Learning a Second Langage - Beyond English

Although there is a great desire by many to learn English as a second or foreign language, it is by no means the only key language in our global communities. With developing economies around the world, other languages are becoming more important. Therefore, besides your own native language, what other languages are important to carry out business, trade, and just everyday communication skills in your communities? How will this change over the coming years?

  1. Portuguese is the official language in Brazil. Despite being a big country, Portuguese is the only language spoken in daily communication everywhere you go. Our growing economy and its stability has attracted investors/companies from around the world - especially from China. In addition to English, lots of Brazilians have been learning Chinese for the past few years in hope of finding a job either in China or in a Chinese company in Brazil.
